Tatsu - August EP [mtk152]
We start with 'Stillness/Introspective Me', which briefly showcases some gorgeous ambience, before moving straight into 'Sky and Sea/Daytime Dream', which sets the agenda - gently building, retro-percussive techno, with claps and hi-hats that sound like they're straight from 1985, but a purity of vision that make things shine. Going on, 'Highland/Glass and Mountains' is just amazing driving music- mechanical, straightahead and oddly almost Robert Miles-like, but avoiding trance cliches on the way to delirium. And so we continue on - 'Evening/Setting Sun' is if anything, even more bliss-like, with more trademark single-key melodies and an unplaceably backwards-looking tint, and 'Deep and Calm/Falling Asleep' works the goodness just a notch further, before 'Memories Of Summer/Goodbye' ends everything out with a gentle fade. More, please.

I noticed the cowbell too,. but, sometimes it worked. A very chill "electronica" release, not the norm style of what I've come to expect from Monotonik over the years.. but then again, whats that mean? They've always been kinda all over the place style wise.
"highland / glass and mountains" is indeed a great track, I just wish the other songs were a bit more in the same vein.
i've checked out this musicians stuff at (his?) the netlabel bumpfoot( http://www.archive.org/audio/collection.php?collection=bumpfoot ) and i have to say - one or two tracks being solid is pretty much the standard so far, but this guy has already come a long way since his first release. Someone to definitly keep an eye out for in the future.. and if there's anything Mono has been great at in the past several years is picking people out of the liter before anyone else.
